Fair to Agency workers campaign in North West
The North West TUC has launched a campaign for agency workers to be treated fairly.
The campaign wants to see agency workers receive fair pay and conditions. Many are paid far less than permanent staff for exactly the same work. Terms and conditions can also be far inferior.
Both sides of industry, the Government and Europe agree that agency workers should get equal treatment, after 12 weeks employment. Legislation has been promised.
But agency workers have waited long enough for fair treatment. That’s why we are calling on employers to introduce equal treatment now.
It’s only fair.
